We are now in the fourth quarter of 2023, and time continues to zip by quickly. Still, we at nextpit have curated a specially crafted list of free apps and games from Google Play and Apple App Store so that you will be able to keep yourself entertained with without having to fork out a single cent.
Understand that these are not free apps. Normally, they have a sticker price tag on the Google Play and Apple App Store which will require you to pay if you want to use them. However, developers do feel generous from time to time by making their apps available to the masses for free. This is what we do twice a week—scour the Google Play Store and Apple App Store to look for the best bargains for you.
- Don't miss this: How to find free apps for Android and iOS
nextpit ensures these apps in our free list have a rating of at least 3.5. Unlike our Top 5 Apps of the Week, we have not reviewed any of these. You are encouraged to perform your due diligence before downloading, as some of them might have hidden costs.
Tip: If you find an interesting app on our list but don't need it now, install, and delete it afterward. This will save the app to your library, allowing you to install it later for free, even after the promotion ends.
